If you live in Central Ohio, you probably know the name Dom Tiberi.

As weekday sports anchor of WBNS-10TV News and co-host of the weekend Wall-to-Wall Sports, Dom delivers the news on the OSU Buckeyes, Columbus Blue Jackets and local high school sports.

Central Ohioans have a deep and personal connection to Dom. So, in September 2013, when his daughter, Maria, was killed in a distracted driving-related car accident, the community felt his pain and loss.

Now, Dom has turned tragedy into opportunity.

In February, the Tiberi family and WBNS launched “Maria’s Message,” a public service campaign to help stop distracted driving and prevent other families from suffering the heartbreak the Tiberis endured.

Nationwide Insurance is a proud sponsor of “Maria’s Message” and shares Dom’s efforts to end all types of distracted driving.

Together, we can honor Maria’s spirit by doing everything we can to make our roads safer and prevent distracted-driving accidents.
